Rosehill Tips November 4

Race 1 - 12:10PM TAB Highway Handicap Tips (1200m)

Best: 2. Bandi's Boy. This gelding saluted as our value selection in last week's Highway and interestingly Danny Williams backs up Bandi's Boy here, who is only third-up following a 13-month absence.

Along with being suited back in grade after resuming in a BM78, the key to last Saturday's success was jumping cleaner and landing midfield, rather than flopping out the back early.

There was merit to that performance in arguably a stronger affair, as he did get to the front quite early and after the 3kg claim from Hannah Williams, he avoided a penalty.

Value: 10. Sammiballerina. While her form was mixed over the back end of her last prep, Sammiballerina did salute second-up as an odds-on fav off a similar platform, albeit it was in weaker company.

The mare again resumed with a third at Scone, which was taken out by Sharp Shock and the runner-up franked the form by winning the feature sprint on Coonabarabran Cup day.

She has no fresh wins her name, but the four-year-old hasn't finished out of the top two in three second-up runs and she carries 3.5kg less from that October 16 return.

Race 2 - 12:45PM Canadian Club Handicap Tips (1500m)

Best: 4. Nails Murphy. A lightly raced import who joined the Maher & Eustace yard after winning at Haydock in July, Nails Murphy was specked in the betting ahead of his Australian debut on October 14.

He was able to find a prominent stalking role despite drawing out and from the turn up until the 300m, the gelding was travelling very strongly before hitting somewhat of a flat spot.

In the end, he was out-sprinted by Sequestered, however, Nails Murphy did stick to the task well and suited up to 1500m here, he should go close with any improvement.
Value: 2. Dream Hour. He looked like a horse with a future last spring, having recorded back-to-back wins before tackling a pair of stakes races and was spelled after a third in the last of those on Melbourne Cup day.

While there were some encouraging signs in six subsequent outings earlier this year, Dream Hour wasn't able to land another blow and was at a crossroads ahead of the spring.

He turned a corner first-up in a midweek BM72, as the Australian Bloodstock galloper was able to hold a stalking position and in the finish, it was a soft win with 60kg.

Race 3 - 1:20PM TAB Handicap Tips (1900m)

Best: 1. Caboche. Although he was one run deeper into the prep and over more ground, this Chris Waller-trained gelding cashed in last prep when finding a weak race and he's going better this time in.

Caboche drops in grade third-up and gets the blinkers applied after working to the line fairly when fifth in a 2000m BM88, while he gets some relief after the Amy McLucas claim.

The son of Vadamos completed a tick-over trial between runs this campaign, so he has a decent enough platform and from a low draw on Saturday, he can settle closer.

Value: 6. Ausbred Rising Sun. After winning two of his first three, Ausbred Rising Sun was thrown in the deep end via the Group 2 Autumn Classic in February and he performed well in that Sandown visit.

Following a third behind the smart Pericles, the son of Maurice then returned north and for whatever reason, he was never able to progress off that Melbourne performance.

Although he was still well held, last Saturday's effort when coming from last over 1600m was okay and getting to 1900m here on the backup, he could be the blowout.

Race 4 - 2:00PM Chandon Handicap Tips (1200m)

Best: 2. Shohei. Instead of resuming at Randwick-Kensington last week, Team Hawkes instead trialled the mare two days later, where she once again worked superbly in a 900m heat here at Rosehill.

A lightly raced five-year-old, Shohei has saluted in her last two return attempts and the first of those was an easy victory over a handy Parisal, who is now a two-time Group winner.

She was only given a very light autumn prep and was narrowly beaten by a smart Fox Frida in April before a spell, so a BM78 against her own sex is well within her grasp.

Value: 8. Cholante. On stable debut for Richard & Will Freedman, Cholante looked close to a good thing first-up in a provincial BM64 and while she had to settle for second, it was still a huge resumption.

Given the task to round up the entire field at Hawkesbury with 61.5kg, she reeled in all bar Gilmore, a consistent on-pacer who had decent form either side of that event.

Cholante was tried at Listed level twice last season, while she placed in town via her only autumn attempt and while she's up in grade, I think she's a Saturday class horse.

Race 5 - 2:40PM Toyota Forklifts Handicap Tips (1300m)

Best: 5. Overriding. She quickly worked through the grades in her second prep, with the daughter of Star Turn opening that campaign with a hat-trick and completed that feat with victory in her metro debut.

Spelled following a third when attempting a four-peat over the Randwick 1400m, Overriding was only nabbed in the last few strides after working early to land outside the leader.

Nathan Doyle is an excellent trainer and he decided not to push on despite being in at a soft time of the year, while off a good chasing effort fresh, there's improvement to come.
Value: 3. Zoe's Promise. An interesting runner is this Australian Bloodstock galloper who is at her third yard, with Kris Lees now preparing Zoe's Promise, who was a Group 2 winner on Cox Plate day last year.

The wheels did fall off at the back end of her three-year-old season, having failed in three mile attempts and given time following a May flop, she appears to be going well.

The four-year-old has worked nicely in three spring trials and has improved with each hit-out, while a decent lead is the Nash Rawiller engagement following win in her last heat.

Race 6 - 3:20PM Four Pillars Midway Tips (1500m)

Best: 24. Miss Checkoni. Even for Midway standards, this is a wildly open betting affair, with three runners fighting for favouritism around the $9-$10 mark currently and the field hasn't been finalised just yet.

While she needs a few more scratchings to get in, which is generally tough when good prize money is available, there are gallopers with wide draws who have other nominations.

Now with the blinkers on following a luckless attempt on October 21, Miss Checkoni can run a race at odds should she find a slot, with this mare working into the prep well.

Value: 14. Smartawi. Resuming a fortnight ago off just one trial and with blinkers applied for this 500k affair, I wonder whether this is a little set play from Greg Hickman with the Wagga Guineas winner.

His work late was okay despite never being in calculations via that Randwick attempt and it's worth noting that the October 6 trial was behind two stakes class runners.

Smartawi ideally wants a little more ground, however, he's a tough horse who continued to show up via a long second prep and he'll be strong at the end of 1500m.

Race 7 - 4:00PM Giga Kick Stakes Tips (1300m)

Best: 4. Private Eye. There's no knocking Think About It, who succeeded on an Everest prep and is now 10/11 overall, but at the prices, I'm more inclined to take a small punt on the stablemate, who won this last year.

While he was able to overcome a wide run when saluting fresh in The Shorts, lightning didn't strike twice in The Everest, where Private Eye finished third after covering ground.

A versatile six-year-old, Private Eye has been jumping well under Nash Rawiller and with Coal Crusher (leader) drawn to his outside, don't be surprised if he goes forward.
Value: 6. Mazu. He doesn't have the class of the two Joe Pride market elects, however, any rain around on Saturday won't hurt the chances of Mazu, who was luckless in The Everest, which he contested second-up.

In a feature where many applauded the effort of In Secret, she got a clear passage late after settling back whereas Mazu was chopped out as that mare started her move.

Although it was inconclusive, the Team Snowden sprinter would've finished closer had he got that space and as a $5 chance in this race last year, he finished second.

Race 8 - 4:45PM James Squire Golden Eagle Tips (1500m)

Best: 16. Amelia's Jewel. Australian racing fans have been spoilt in recent years with superstars in Black Caviar and Winx, but unfortunately, that champion pair have made many believe that good horses can't have bad days.

While we're not close to knowing the ceiling of Amelia's Jewel, writing her off after one poor run would be silly and it's worth noting that she was off her feed for a few days after that Toorak flop.

After shorter turnarounds, including a two-week gap when ridden out of her comfort zone to break a track record, three weeks between runs here, especially with interstate travel has come as a blessing.

Value: 12. Obamburumai. There's no questioning the credentials of champion hoop Yutaka Take, who misses the ride due to injury, but from a low draw in a 20-runner affair at Rosehill, the Josh Parr engagement is a big tick.

Parr provided a positive report following the recent work of Omamburumai, a four-year-old who has two Group victories to his name from only five starts, with the latest coming in the clockwise direction.

After that brilliant display in April, the Japanese entire again made good inroads when third in the Group 1 NHK Mile Cup and it's worth noting his tactical versatility, so he can use barrier two early.

Race 9 - 5:20PM Rosehill Gold Cup Tips (2000m)

Best: 1. No Compromise. An honest campaigner from the Chris Waller yard, No Compromise was building into the prep nicely with strong chasing efforts over 1500m and 1900m before last week's Craven Plate.

Sent out as a $5 chance in that Group 3 as a result of his strong lead-up runs, the gelding was held up from the 400m to 150m, which cost him a chance of being in the finish.

He now has to give more weight to most rivals given he's coming back from a WFA event, however, it is an easier assignment overall and the Nash Rawiller booking is a plus.
Value: 3. Sky Lab. Admittedly, he's a horse that needs luck due to his racing pattern and on Sydney circuits that have been tough for backmarkers, being ultra negative all prep hasn't helped the six-year-old.

Interestingly, Jason Collett now takes the reins on Sky Lab and that same move was made following a second in the Summer Cup, which resulted in a Magic Millions win.

While Collett can be a frustrating hoop on horses that need an early tactical edge, Sky Lab is the ideal match for him and with the right run, he's capable of winning this.

Race 10 - 5:55PM Schweppes Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 3. Way to The Stars. Nash Rawiller stays aboard this Matthew Smith-trained sprinter for his third-up assignment and with a kind map here for the speedster, he only needs to hold his form to atone on Saturday.

Following a strong return win where he defied a big betting drift, Way to The Stars was only just nabbed by Stanislaus in his second-up tilt and he was giving 7kg to that winner.

That October 7 event has produced two winners, including Doull, who took out the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint a fortnight later, while this gelding has since won a tick-over trial.

Value: 6. Defiant Heart. The country-based sprinter rounded his autumn campaign with back-to-back victories in the bush and this prep, Defiant Heart has acquitted himself well in four metro attempts.

The son of Shamus Award has mixed it up in terms of grades, with two BM72 showings (one a Midway) and yet he's been more competitive via the BM78 and BM100 efforts.

On paper, a second to Spacewalk (who smashed the clock that day) reads very well for this, while with tactical speed and a low draw, he ticks a lot of boxes for a 30/1 pop.
